I don't think that would be a problem. Last spring I brewed something similar (not as much wheat). And I used Amarillo, Calypso and Galaxy. It was a 10 gallon batch with... I want to say 4oz of each at flame out.

+1.  Getting all your hop flavor from the whirlpool addition, you could easily double the additions to 1 oz each and stand for 30-40 minutes. Personally I would use a little more but, not knowing how much hop character you like, I say use 1 oz each this time and you can adjust next time if you think it needs more. Anyway, you should report back how it comes out for you.  Good luck !

I saw it, but there are degrees of anything. Not every guy who brews IPA would use what I use and like it. I'd rather have him brew it again and use more than post his complaints that I had him brew 'hop tea'. Now having said that, if all my hop flavor came in the hop stand, I'd use 6 oz here .   ;)

EDIT -  Or more  :D

There you go!  Try dry hopping 4 oz for a week at room temp and you'll have a nice hoppy one.

2 oz of each in the whirlpool, 1.33 of each to dry hop. Or whatever combo of those 3 late hops sounds good to you. It'll be good!

Well because of funds and needing a 1000ml flask I ended up getting two oz each of the flame out additions so thinking of doing 1.5oz whirlpool of each and .5oz each for 7 day dry hop getting a flask and smaller stir bar where on top of my list when I went to the LHBS so think it will still be a nice fruity brew

Suggestion, take it or leave it.  Ditch the critter and mold harboring foam stopper for fresh aluminum foil each batch.

Yea I was thinking about that alittle bit of the yeast when pouring out of the vial hit the side of my flask and I was worrying about that,  thanks for the heads up and guidance like I said my first madden voyage with a flask and stir plate so wasn't sure if maybe the foam was needed or not.  Use to just make starters in mason jars with alum over the top with the walk by and give it a shake lol,  this is so much easier and no worrys except I need to space my lid up just a hair to keep from the flask weight and the magnet trying to come together but other then that she is running like a dream.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, but will save you from having to boil that stopper all the time.  Also, nice job on the DIY project.
